College Prep Course for Parents Offered at Penn State Fayette April 22

4/14/2009 —
Parents of college-bound students are encouraged to attend Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ “College Prep for Parents 101” class on April 22. This free session designed specifically for parents will be held in Swimmer Hall in the Williams Building from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

“College Prep for Parents 101” will help parents understand what their children need to do to prepare for college, and how they can help in their success. Admissions Counselor Apryl Kadish explains, “Parents who have high school students getting ready to make the transition to college have a lot of questions. Even if the parents are college graduates, things may be much different than when they attended college. I find parents want to make sure their college-bound children get off on the right foot, so this class was developed to help them help their children.”

Parents who attend the class will learn how to help their children set expectations and prepare themselves academically. They will also learn how to help their children aim toward a career, research and apply for college, and apply for financial aid.

For more information or to reserve a seat, call the Penn State Fayette Admissions Office at 724-430-4130.
